Be the Difference This World Longs For

As disciples of Christ, we are called to be a peculiar people.  A city set on a hill CANNOT be hidden.  We are called to rise above the culture and be shining lights for Christ in the darkness.  Let us not be afraid to take a stand for truth as we see the culture shift, and those around us, even our own family, choosing to change and blend in with the culture.  Let’s love them as Christ loves the Church, and show them the true character of God.

“Rise above it!  Rise above the culture and what they expect of you, My beloved!  Rise above the culture and its expectations.  I have not called you to go with the flow of the culture as it changes.  I have called you to be in the world, not of it.  I have called you to be different, a peculiar people.  You cannot make a difference, you cannot BE the difference this world needs if you are just like them.  I have called you to stand out.  You are special.  You are different.  You are made in My image.  The world does not understand you because you are called to be like Me.  They think they are right, but they are deceived.  I have called you, My prized creation, to live among them, to be among them, even though you wish to leave this world, because I want you to show them Who I am.  I want you to be Me to them.  Act just like Me.  Show them how I would love them.  Show them how I cherish them and how I long to be with them.  Let them know that I’m the One they long for, not the fleshly things they live for.  Show them how deeply I love them and cause them to want to run after Me.  It’s for this purpose that I have you on the Earth, My beloved.  There are many that I’m waiting on to come into My Kingdom.  It’s for this purpose that I have you here.  Don’t faint and don’t lose heart in doing good, My beloved, for in due time you will reap if you do not grow weary.  What a harvest it will be!!!  Stand on My Word and do not give into the beliefs, philosophies and changes in the culture.  You will rejoice and be glad you did on the day that you stand before Me!!!”

Soak in My Presence and Be Refreshed!

“I long for you.  I long for My children to rest.  Rest in Me.  Come and sit at My feet and soak in My Presence.  It is not scary.  I am not waiting to strike you down.  There is a special place waiting in My Presence just for you.  There is a place in My heart prepared just for you.  I have the rest that you need.  I have the peace that you’re longing for.  It is all in My Presence and it is waiting just for you.  Come, lay your troubles down and find peace for your souls.  This world is wearing on your mind, will and emotions.  Set aside time.  I long for My children to set aside time to spend in My Presence.  No longer say that you don’t have time.  No longer say that you are too busy.  It is essential that you spend time in My Presence.  You need to fill yourselves with Me in order to make it in the day and time that you’re living in.  No longer will Sunday church service be enough.  No longer will a church experience be enough.  It is imperative for your souls that you set time aside daily and spend it with Me.  You cannot depend on your own wisdom to get you through.  You cannot lean on your own understanding, for your wisdom and understanding will fail at the moments of your greatest need.  Spend time with Me and I will give you wisdom and I will give you strategies.  For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says The Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.  No longer think that you can get by with attending church on Sunday without spending time with Me.  You need My Presence to make it through.  You need to be constantly filled and refreshed to make it and not grow weary in the Last Days.  Come!  Drink of My Presence and get refreshed, says The Lord!”
